I guess since today is technically the first day of autumn our visit home was not an autumnal visit but it sure felt like summer was over. The weather was hot during the day and very cool at night. Everything in the garden was over ripe and either dried up or falling off the vine ready to be eaten. The Italian Prune tree was perfectly ripe and we saw just a few snatches of fall leaves in the mountains on our way to Bend. Autumn was on it's way!
We had a lovely visit in Bend, which is a very pretty town. I never realized just how much it has grown up in the past 10-15 years.
Rachel's wedding (the whole point of the trip home, really) was gorgeous. We were amazed by the hop vines they had growing at the venue. The whole place was just beautiful, lawn, gardens, creek, everything.
